Error Starting Script Editor in SSIS

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I am having a problem in the Business Intelligence Development Studio. When I add and try to edit a Script Task or a Script Component, I click on the Design Script button and get one of two errors. For the Script task I get an error that states:

Cannot show the editor for this task. (Microsoft Visual Studio)

For the Script component I get:

Cannot show Visual Studio for Applications editor. (Microsoft Visual Studio)

For some reason or another it just will not start Visual Studio for Applications. I have uninstalled an re-installed several times. I have also researched and discovered that there is a bug when C# tasks are include in the project. However, this is not the case. Please help!

SQL Server 2008 Script Componant Error - [SSIS.Pipeline] Error: component "Script Comp Name" (48) fa

Hi All,   I am facing one strange issue in SSIS 2008. I have developed one SSIS package which is importing excel data into SQL Server 2008. This Package contains some Scirpt componants. This package is working fine on Windows XP machine but when I am trying to run on Windows 2003 server it gives me error "[SSIS.Pipeline] Error: component "SCR RDSTableRelation" (48) failed the post-execute phase and returned error code 0x80004002". Surprising thing is that if on windows server 2003server  if I drag a new script componat and paste the previous script code itself then it works fine. Even if I copy-paste the existing script componant and give source-destination connectino to this new script componant then also it works.

SSIS Error in Script task: "Conversion from string "C002" to type 'Integer' is not valid"


Hi All,

I have a script component in my Dataflow that generates Error Description string.

But I am not trying to convert anything in my Script as you can see below.

Here is the Code inside the SCR_component.


Imports System
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Math
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper

Public Class ScriptMain
    Inherits UserComponent
    Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)
     'Use the incoming error number as a parameter to GetErrorDescription
    Row.ErrorDescription = ComponentMetaData.GetErrorDescription(Row.ErrorCode)
   End Sub
End Class


When I run the package , it fails at this script task with the following error:

Description: System.InvalidCastException: Conversion from string "C002" to type 'Integer' is not valid.


The value "C002" is actually a column in the metadata and its type is "DT_STR". I am not trying to convert it in my Script as you can see

Get latest file name using SSIS script task: Error while execution


Hi  , I am trying to get the latest file name to process files in SSIS using vb.net code . I did set the varible in the For each loop container and assigned the variable in my file connection. I have been receiving this error msg.: Please help me out.

Error: 0x2 at Get File Name: The script threw an exception: The element cannot be found in a collection. This error happens when you try to retrieve an element from a collection on a container during execution of the package and the element is not there.

Javascript error on Rich Text Editor of CEWP

Hi all,

I have a problem that is really bugging and I wasn't able to find any workaround all day. I'll try to give as many details as possible:

I'm maintaining several site collections on a single server and this problem occurs only on one of the site collections. However it occurs on all subsites of this collection, it occurs on old pages and newly created pages, even on pages containing only one empty CEWP.

When I'm pressing the button for Rich Text Editor of CEWP I get the following error:

Message: Invalid argument.
Line: 5740
Char: 2
Code: 0
URI: http://www.dyrlaegeankenaevn.dk/_layouts/1030/HtmlEditor.js

I've tracked down the error with IE developer tools and I found that the error pops up in HtmlEditor.js at

function RTE2_GenerateLaunchArguments(parameterArray, webUrl, containerID)

I followed containerID down the stack and it comes from:

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.

SSIS Import/Export Wizard: "Unexpected Unrecoverable Error"

For whatever reason, whenever the SSIS Import/Export Wizard needs to display an error message, it throws up "Unexpected Unrecoverable Error" instead. The three buttons - Abort, Retry, and Ignore - all cause the wizard to close. I see some activity in Process Monitor that looks like DTSWizard.exe is probing around for some System.Web assemblies, and not finding them. I'm running 2008 SP1 on Win 7 x86, and I've reinstalled the client tools and Integration Services. Anybody else seen this issue? Should I file a report on Connect?

C# newbie stuck - trying to access column data in a SharePoint list in an SSIS script task

Hello, I'm sure this is the simplest question but I can't figure it out, even with Google's help. I am trying to stumble through some C# code in an SSIS script task and I am frustrated that I can't figure out how to do the easiest things.  I eventually want to find data in a column,and then use another list as a lookup to replace that value with another where the existing value matches a value in the lookup list.  So, the data in my (multiple choice) column might be "apples; bananas" and in another list I have a row that contains two columns, the first holding the value "Apples" and the second containing "Red Delicious" and my original column should read: "Red Delicious; bananas." But, alas, I can't even figure out how to see the data that is in a column. Here is my code: /*<br/> Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Task<br/> Write scripts using Microsoft Visual C# 2008.<br/> The ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.<br/> */<br/> <br/> using System;<br/> using System.Data;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint;<br/> using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;<br/> using System.Windows.Forms;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;<br/> <br/> namespace ST_08becda4c05c49cd9f30ea76110076cd.csproj<br/> {<br/> [
